June 22, 2019, Saturday afternoon -- Reading James Salter

In the sculpture garden at the SFMOMA
She is reading A Sport and a Pastime, by James Salter. She found it at McNally Jackson bookstore in New York City and and bought it based on the description on the back cover, which says it's set in Provincial France in the 1960s and is about a Yale dropout and a French shopgirl. The last line of the blurb, which caught her eye says,"Yet what is really at stake is not merely sex but our need to tell stories about love, and to judge our own amorous successes and failures through the lens of other peoples' lives."

She reads a lot so it's hard to name a favorite author, but a couple of her favorites are Tom Robbins and Kurt Vonnegut.
